About Me

Hello! I'm Carmen. I live in the Lower Mainland of BC, Canada with my fiancé, his mother, and 2 black cats named Luna and Enzo.

I have various credentials in the field of Psychology, but am very indecisive as to what I'd like to pursue as a career, so who knows where I'll go next.

I've recently discovered a love of all things mail related and swapping fun, so decided to give this a try after it was brought to my attention :)

  • Quick Note: I'm incredibly easy to please! If you can't match my preferences/wishlist very much, don't worry about it :) Send a surprise! Or feel free to contact me :)

Hobbies

My hobbies include (but are not limited to, because I always forget to mention things):

  • Reading
  • Writing fiction and letters
  • Crafts: knitting, beading, cross-stitch, and I've recently returned to heat embossing
  • Nail polish art,
  • Video games
  • TV and movies (but the book is always better!)

I'm always on the lookout for new penpals, so if something in my profile catches your eye and you'd like to stay in touch beyond our initial swap, let me know :)

Postcard Preferences

I'm incredibly flexible on postcards, so send something you think I'd like! But please check my Flickr album to avoid sending duplicates as much as possible.

If you're a Postcrossing member, you can check my profile and favourites for inspiration :)

I prefer postcards to be written and stamped without envelopes, if at all possible.

I like to read about other people and countries, so it would be great if you could write a bit about yourself. I'm also fond of languages, so if you're able to write some thing in another language along wit translation, that would be cool!

Other Likes

  • Tweety Bird: I'm a MASSIVE fan and am always thrilled to receive Tweety items!

  • Tea: I'm open to all flavours, but if there isn't English on the label I'd appreciate a quick note letting me know the flavour! (I sort my tea chest by flavour)

  • Hot chocolate and/or coffee (or a mix thereof!)

  • Letter Writing supplies: Nice paper and/or envelopes

  • Bookmarks

  • Craft supplies: Yarn, ribbon, buttons, beads, stickers, cardstock, embossing powders (though I'm not sure how those would travel through customs), etc...

  • Surprise me!

Comment: Wow, looks like you had a lot of fun. GISHWHES sounds like fun - I might look into it for next year.
Response: Thanks for the rating and the heart! Alas, supposedly this year was the last for Gishwhes, but it also sounds like there will be something very similar next year. We're just not sure what it will be yet! Hopefully you can join that at least :)

Comment: I would love to try ziplining but the mere thought sends chills down my spine. Same with bungee mumping; the idea is so cool but I don't know if I'd have balls to do it :D
Response: That's what I thought too, but it also sounded fun. Luckily the place we went to wasn't *too* high (it looks it when you're up there, but we also spent a lot of time on the ground walking between lines. And when I looked at other places when I got home, it looks like their highest was lower than most. So I call it a happy transition/intro haha!) Hopefully someday you can try it too :) Thanks for the rating and the heart!

Comment: You had a busy month! Love the mini golf, we only see it at the seaside in England, so it's a once a year treat. Great fun :-)
Response: No matter where we go, it's a wee bit of a drive for us too (over a toll bridge too), but it makes for a fun date night :) Thanks for the rating and the heart!

Comment: First off: WOW! I love how you put your reading log together so much!! I might steal this method from you; it's so much nicer than what I have been doing... I love your detailed reviews throughout--I feel like I'm reading a review blog! I think I will keep this little book on my shelf with the handmade zines I've collected over the years. Simply amazing!
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words, rating, and the heart! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it :)

I got your 2nd quarter reading log. Thank you for sending, I really enjoyed reading it. I use random number generator to decide what to read too. Also I am a part of Carpe Librum group on swap-bot. We have a nice monthly swap called Pick my next read. The idea is to let your swap partner to choose the book for you to read from the TBR list.

APDG ~ Seasons Of The Year, #1 Winter

Ahhhh, Winter. How I love looking at snow-scapes! There is such a feeling of peace when watching new snow fall. And to see new snow as yet unmarked by foot prints, tire tracks or anything else. Magical! And then to watch as animals and children discover this intriguing substance. Wonderful!

I hope you have enjoyed the winter views I've posted. Enjoy the remainder of Winter - Spring is on its way.
